that had been evacuated. she explained to us the night of the shooting that there was loud music emerging from james holmes apartment and that she had gone up there to knock on the door and at one point had called authorities to let them know about that, but they said they were too busy with the shooting and they couldn't spare someone to come over here and do that, but she said the door was unlocked and told us the door was unlocked. obviously, she's very emotional about the fact she easily could have opened up that door and who knows what would have happened if she had done that. so luckily, for her, she decided not to do that and went back downstairs, but a lot of this area remains cordoned off and remains shut down. at one point, it would allow authorities to come back and james holmes' apartment, that will be shut down for quite some time and i'm not sure whether the surrounding areas will be opened up here in the coming days. obviously, the people whoive around this area are probably antsy to get back into their apartments and they'll be passing on developments about that and how th

for the others. >>> a bridge connecting canada and the u.s. was shut down for hours because of a bomb threat. >> it is one of the busiest bridges linking the united states to on tare o. sarah. >> police say someone called 911 and warned a bomb would go off on the ambassador bridge in detroit. >> the canadian authorities shut down the bridge on their side. at that time it was collaboration between the customs, u.s. customs along with several other agencies here and the decision was made to actually shut down this side as well. >> police set up several roadblocks near the bridge, where k-9 units were called in. coast guard teams were also on hand patrolling the river underneath the bridge. it led to major traffic backups. >> inconvenienced. sit here five hours, six hours maybe, so they can get things cleared up. check on every inch of the bridge, i guess. >> along with the bridge search, investigators are trying to track down where the 911 call was made. >> this call did come from the u.s. side and we are definitely following up on the information that we have so far utilizing our intell cente
, must be because i was just so smart. there are a lot of smart people out there. bill: take us into the mind frame for a comment like that. white house would come out and argue and i imagine they will government has a purpose and that was the point the president was trying to make. the point you're making this goes back to his days a as community organizer. explain that. >> well, i think in essence when you're a community organizer you're basically dealing with a lot of people disadvantaged you're trying to get them government assistance or welfare checks or whatever and the other part of the story though is that people who are creating jobs are getting up every day and going to work and working very, very hard. this should be a campaign celebrating the american worker. his story in itself is successful story. bill: president obama. >> president obama. i think to certain extent but reflect as mindset. it is the mindset the contrast between what romney and his campaign will be about. we can again become a great leader of the world as we always have been. we can get americans bac
that they would close some of the loopholes that benefit some of the wealthiest americans. and, mitt, could use this as a chance to show how generous you are. it is true that mitt romney gave $7 million to chair i in the two years that i held up. 2010 and 2011. that's 16.34% of his income. it is more than he paid in federal taxes. now, keep the screen up. it's not like he sat there and hoarded the money he didn't pay to uncle sam. he gave enough away to make his rate 31%. greater than the 30% that president barack obama says should be the minimum rate for wealthy americans. so if you look at it that way, mitt's taxes seem to add up just fine. key make the argument that's why he should seize the narrative. it isn't caving to democrats to release them. not only have many in his oem party called on him to do it, it also lets him take control of the conversation. what's wroen with being known as one of the most generous people in the country? great to see all of you. john, let me start with our strike team question. independent political analysts. we polled them and said is mitt romney hurting hims
, the chief of the federal reserve, got more negative on the state of the u.s. economy. >> given that growth is projected to be not much above the rate needed to absorb new entrance into the labor force, the reduction in the unemployment rate seems likely to be frustratingly slow. >> so what's the solution? well, in note after note from wall street economists and traders today, i read something along the lines of this. bernanke will launch another round of easy money to help the economy. it will bring interest rates even lower. it's just a matter of time, he'll do it, he'll do it, don't worry. that's the kind of talk the addicts use. yearning for more of his powerful drug, which is essentially just cheap, easy money. so many were hoping for another shot of the goods today, but while the fed chairman painted a darker picture of the economy, he also made it clear he is not ready -- not ready to hit us with another round of easy money, at least not yet. >> we are looking for ways to address the weakness in the economy, should more action be needed. >> now ben bernanke also said, quote, congress
levels of the u.s. government. even working side by side with secretary of state hillary clinton. the evidence they point to, however, well, it's questionable at best. are calling for an investigation because what she terms the possible deep penetration, her words, of muslim extremists into the u.s. government. in letters to it is inspectors general for five different government security agencies. we've been digging into one of their most serious claims. they point finger, at this woman, huma abadin, secretary of state hillary clinton's deputy chief of staff. implying she may somehow be working on behalf of the muslim brotherhood. now, you would think to make a charge like that for sitting members of congress to make a charge like that, that they would have some actual evidence, right? you would think that. but the truth is they don't have any direct evidence. what they have are allegations of past connections of relatives of hers that are tenuous best. has called for bachmann to produce credible evidence. so bachmann produced a 16 page letter she sent to the congressman. we're g
is not ready -- not ready to hit us with another round of easy money, at least not yet. >> we are looking for ways to address the weakness in the economy, should more action be needed. >> now ben bernanke also said, quote, congress is in charge here. not the federal reserve. and that congress needs to reach an agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff. well, of course, we've joined that chorus until we've been blue in the face over the past year. but the problem, of course, is that congress does not seem to have any intention of dealing with the tax cuts, debt ceiling, sequestration cuts, the things that comprise the fiscal cliff. congress seems to be incapable of doing its job, something that chuck schumer admitted at the hearing today. >> so given that the political realities, mr. chairman, particularly in this election year, i'm afraid the fed is the only game in town. and i would urge you to take whatever actions you think would be most helpful in supporting a stronger economic recovery. >> i like watching ben bernanke's face. he looks down as if his heart has been bron. he could cave. he c
there at the convention. plus, a local professor will join us live with what she thinks is romney's best move forward. >> split second decisions are made every day by law enforcement and officers in prince george's county are getting high tech training to help them out. wisdom martin is putting their new system to the test. >> later, your one stop shop for the cutest cat and how you can take part in a new festival. look at that. that is super cute. >> what is it about cat videos -- >> look how long he's on his back legs. >> and fighting the air. first let's go to tucker barnes. he has the latest on the weather. hey, tucker. >>> weather looks fine. sunshine today. upper 80s to about 90. where we should be this time of year. without much humidity, and without much threat for showers and thunderstorms. should turn into a decent day. there's a little cloud cover, southern maryland, towards st. mary's city, leonardtown, you have a little cloud cover. and lower eastern shore as well. the rest of us, bright sunshine. the trend will be plenty of sunshine for most of us, and again we should be dry today with
flooding. out to the west out into west virginia, eastern ohio, showers and storms and that will bring us a round of heavy showers and thunderstorms. we already have a flash flood watch issued for most of the area here west of the chesapeake bay starting at 12:00 noon today. look out for that potential later this afternoon and tonight. i think your morning hours are fine but by mid- to late afternoon, look out for the showers. some of those will be heavy. 87 your daytime high in washington. 89 in fredericksburg. >> we've been getting used to it with all the power outages if you come across any traffic signals that are dark, please be sure to use those as a four- way stop. we are following the situation here traveling the inner loop at 201. disabled vehicle here and some activity off to the right shoulder t look like everybody is moving past it at much better speed now. your delays should be easing out from college park heading into greenbelt. on the outer loop from college park heading into silver spring, you are in good shape. 66, new accident here. this is just prior to route 50 fair oa
, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling for unity. what did you make of his comments? >> it's always a fine line because there are a lot of people who don't want to be hearing about politics, they don't want -- people want to be very careful about not exploiting a terrible tragedy like this. there is a pretty credible counterargument that says you don't turn it into a political fight where you're trying to get an advantage over your enemies and exploit it but i do think it's reasonable to have a national conversation about the context, about why these things happen, whether there are things we can do to prevent tragedies like this. if a plane crashes because you think the aircraft control system wasn't working, you would talk about how to reform it. but guns is such a volatile loaded subject, i think someone like obama and probably mitt romney are going to step back because they know that walking into that conversation immediately just turns into a distorted politicized -- >> mitt romney is expected to make remarks in the next few minutes. we'll bring
we think you deserve a look at the people they've been targeting and the tactics they've been using. they've named these two asking a federal inspectors general to investigate muslim brotherhood infiltration. on the right is mohammed elibiary. on the right is huma abedin. both have received threats since being named. some top republicans have risen to her defense. >> these allegations and the report from which they're drawn are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated american and a loyal public servant. >> the bachmann five website that claims to connect ms. abedin to the muslim brotherhood in this convoluted way. through an organization her late father started decades ago which allegedly had the support of another guy who had another organization that might have had the support of another organization the muslim brotherhood. the website also makes allegations against her brother and mother. as a top aide to the secretary of state, miss abedin has a security clearance. and as such has undergone extensive background checks. now, last
's going on in this case now. >> ed lavandera on the scene for us as he's been right from the beginning. thank you. elsewhere, in maryland, police say the fbi are now investigating an abduction with ties to the baseball legend cal rib ken jr. his mother was found safe this morning almost 24 hours after being taken from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear wha
it's time for jumbo wings and juicy glazed ribs and one famous harley riding barbecue guru shoes us how it's really done. this is "nightline," july 13, 2012. >>> good evening. tonight it's one of the most wide-spread scams in the world of cyber crime. raking in millions of each year. you receive an e-mail that looks like a cry from help from a friend who has been rob rd on vacation overseas, but it's really a hacker looking to cash in. well, when one of these e-mails ended up inbox of a "nightline" producer, she and abc's consumer correspondent elizabeth decided to follow the money and "nightline" investigates. >> reporter: hi. just writing to let you know my trip to the philippines with my family has been a mess. >> the e-mail came from 10,000 mimes away, pleading for help and money. >> it has been an awful experience. i was hit at the back of any neck with a club. >> it landed in our producer's inbox a few weeks ago and she suspected it was one of the most popular online cons going these days. one the fbi says costs americans millions of dollars a year. it's called the stranded tr
's a gold medal performance. that's all for us tonight. "anderson cooper" starts now. >> piers thanks. >>> good evening, everyone. it's 10:00 on the east coast. we begin tonight keeping them honest. with new developments concerning unproven allegations by five republican members of congress that our government is being infiltrated by radical jihadists, members of the muslim brotherhood. we've reported on this numerous times over the last couple weeks. because we have, i've had people and groups point fingers at me, and saying i'm ignorant and nigh ave or aiding and abetting muslim extremists. i've seen radical islamists up close in bosnia, somalia, iraq and other places. i've seen the horrible things they've done overseas and in this country as weapon. later in the broadcast, we're going to look at the role foreign jihadists are playing in syria right now. i'm not defending radical islamists nor am i naive to their beliefs. but what i am talking about is people working in this government making allegations or spreading innuendos about them without any direct evidence. they're dragging
indication for two months. that means certain things, and what's interesting to us, we have been saying that europe was the key for financial stocks because -- if we had the confidence for 40 years in the u.s., i have beenble to play the fed, when the fed loosened up, we were confident that the economy would come back because people knew what the numbers were. not so sure that china comes back as quickly as the u.s. did when the central bank of china loosens up. >> so china is a bigger unknown. let's talk about this. this fiscal cliff when the bush tax cuts expire along the programs at the end of the year, and that will push companies to fire people. they will not keep the workers on. so what do you think happened? you have to believe this creates real volatility and downward pressure on stocks. >> i think what's going on right now about this cliff is not anything real. it's politically driven and ron has it right. the only thing both sides of the aisle have done is decide not to raise taxes, but the whole argument is disingenuous. this is the fax code and they play a head game with us
in the neighborhood and you ask a bunch of questions, well, that doesn't seem to justify us going in and that person winds up killing somebody, or robbing or raping somebody, we'll be the first ones to blame you. so you're in an untenable situation. and when it comes to the war on terror, mr. clegg, i couldn't agree with you more. the reality of the fact is, i wish we had done more to major hassan, not less. there's some websites out there that i'm glad we're monitoring. there's some groups within america that are saying some pretty radical things. and i hope we follow the leaders of these groups to find out what they're up to because homegrown terrorism is on the rise. how do you fight it without fighting a religion? how do you fight homegrown terrorism without fighting people who are local to america people who are loyal to america who belong to a particular faith? i don't know. but i know this. if the law enforcement community in this country fails to find out about the major hasans, we're the first one to be on your case. why didn't you follow this website? he said these things in these meetings
gergen is with us from cambridge, massachusetts. david, i don't believe it. i don't know. what do you think? if romney picked condoleezza rice would that not be a game changer? >> it sure would create a lot of buzz just as even the rumor has overnight. coming from matt drudge. you know, it's conventional wisdom within the political community that matt drudge has a direct line to one of mitt romney's top people matt rhodes who is very close in and drudge and rhodes are good friends. so all along drudge has had a pretty good take on it. when he came out and said conned -- condoleezza rice is at the top of the list everybody said wow. i thought this was off the table. look, i think it's more of a trial balloon than anything else. i'm in that camp. the romney people wanted to change the story and get away from bain and get on to other things. it's also true that they could stir things up and sort of put things up in the air and say, conservatives, are you willing to go with this or not? a lot of conservatives think condi rice is too close to george bush sr. and not enough of a foreign pol
